Photography on a snowy mountain

It was a beautiful morning.

Unfortunately, Katya was not completely recovered from the cold.  I sneezed, too.  We decided not to go skiing.

We had breakfast at Starbucks.

On the way home, we dropped by at a drug store and bought some medicines, as well as packs of powdered ginger drink (ginger powder, unrefined sugar, and starch to be dissolved in hot water) and bottles of energy drink.

We had both of them at home.

Although we would not go skiing, Katya wanted to take pictures on a snowy mountain.  I thought it was a good idea.  Maya-san agreed, who hates low temperature but likes to walk on the snow.

We drove to Kiyosato.

First we drove to Sun Meadows Kiyosato Ski Resort.  It was not as crowed as I had thought.  We could have enjoyed skiing.

Then we went to Makiba Koen Park. There were very few people in the park. Katya took good pictures. Maya-san enjoyed jumping in the snow.

On the way back, we saw deer. Maya-san furiously barked at them inside the car.

We saw another deer.  This time, we did not let Maya-san see them.  We stopped the car and Katya sneaked out to take pictures of them.

We are now home and finished with dinner.

I am writing this post and Katya is posting today’s pictures.

    I have to say, whilst it may not be the best thing for getting over a cold… just looking at all that brisk mountain air makes me feel all fit and healthy. And glad that I’m warm here.

    Does the cold make Maya-san’s leg worse? Still… there’s something about dogs and snow. And beaches. And Parks etc… their instinct to run and play seems to pretty well override just about any other common sense.

    Thank you for your concern about our cold.
    Our cold was not that bad at all, but we tried not to ski and not to get wet. We are completely fine today.
    It was eventually a good idea to go out for pictures.

    Maya-san’s leg got worse. However, we are not so worried because it happens once in a while. After taking some rest, she will be fine. We now take that it is one of her characters.
    More mentally than physically, it seems to us that she needs to run once in a while.

    By the way, Ben, your “Japanese ties” sometimes cannot be seen. Now the comment goes:
